Research shows that Microsoft Office is the only software package called out within the top 20 skills needed across all occupations, explicitly required in 15 percent of high-growth, high-salary positions. Microsoft Office is No. 3 on the list of skills most required, and Microsoft PowerPoint and Word are No. 11 and No. 13 most required skills. Therefore, in order for you to compete in today's workforce, it is imperative for you obtain skills in Microsoft Office.
